Make Like Snails


Its always been a worry of mine
That snails don't get the recognition they deserve
"Go faster" they say,
Don't stop, speed blindly round the curves.
How you gonna get things done,
Going so slowly towards your goals?
Well, when I'm done…
At least I'm still whole.

Don't rush life,
It'll work out in the end.
Don't rush life, let stillness be your friend.
Don't rush life,
You'll only feel regret.
Don't rush life,
Slow down, it's not over yet.

Don't rush life,
You'll only feel regret.
Don't rush life,
Slow down, it's not over yet.

I can't lay next to you,
If you won't lay down..
